Members Elect New Officers

The Catholic Health Initiatives Members, who represent the participating congregations as members of the civil corporation, elected new officers to one-year terms at their annual meeting in May. Rita Kraemer, OSF, of the Franciscan Sisters of Little Falls, Minnesota, is the new chair of the Members; and Maureen Walker, PBVM, of the Sisters of the Presentation of the Blessed Virgin Mary, is the new secretary. Sister Rita’s predecessor, Mary Ellen Murphy, SC, of the Sisters of Charity of Cincinnati, had served three consecutive terms as chair, the maximum allowed. Sister Maureen’s predecessor, Madonna Marie Cunningham, OSF, of the Sisters of St. Francis of Philadelphia, recently resigned as secretary for personal reasons.
